So I can track down that bitch and make her ante up for child support!

Gave her 7 children, and now she wants to give them back.

Seriously, good post. Purple Gel's response is our approach. A handful of shows where knew venue would provide space/sanctuary. I will take my 9 year old to Dylan on August 21st at Monterey Fairgrounds, just like I took my mom for Mother's Day back in '81 at the Fox in Atlanta. Got to complete that loop.

I dunno, to each their own. I brought my baby daughter to a Ratdog show when she was just learning to walk, and she, I, and my wife all had lots of fun. It was a lovely outdoor arena, we had a nice spot on the lawn, the weather was beautiful, the crowd a bit sedate, and the music not too loud.

In general it's probably more fun without the added responsibility of having small children along for the ride, but if I didn't have a babysitter, and the choice was sell/give away the ticket or bring the kids, I'd probably bring the kids.

I know a guy, who was forbidden from taking his kids to a Grateful Dead concert as a condition of a divorce. His ex-wife hated the scene and so did the judge.

I'm a rabid deadhead, but I'm with the judge and ex on this one.

Each year we take our kids to the Scott Valley Bluegrass Fest. It meets the family requirements. Arts and crafts, puppet and magic shows, and really great music. The kids get to meet the artists.

I've also taken my daughter to see some folk and bluegrass at the Sierra Nevada Brewery, which was great.

I was in the 4th row at an ABB show in Concord, CA and the guy in front of us brought his 10 year-old son. I felt really uncomfortable puffing a big fatty and screaming "Yeah! Warren! Hell yeah!!". But that is exactly what I came to do and the father should have expected such behavior. I must admit, both Margaret and I were put-off by the child's presence.

...especially when the kid turned around and said "Hey, dude, don't bogart that joint."
